Obituary of Sister Olive Pasterczyk, RSM

Sister Olivia Pasterczyk, RSM

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Sr. Olivia Pasterczyk, RSM who died unexpectedly this morning at Frances Warde Convent.  Sister Olivia was 96 years old having spent 65 years as a Sister of Mercy.

Sister Olivia spent a number of years making altar breads while the Sisters of Mercy had that ministry.  When she retired and moved to Frances Warde Convent, she was not content to remain idle and began crocheting hats, mittens or other items for the families at the Preble Street Family Shelter.  She would engage another Sister to bring her to the Shelter so she could deliver her bag of goods which always contained a bag of candy!

Please pray for the consolation of her religious and natural families and her friends.  May her soul and the soul of all the faithful departed rest in peace.  Amen
